New Delhi: If you are a netizen in India, every move that you make could be constituted as offensive by an elite group of people interconnected by their mutual joblessness – internet trolls.
The latest in the line of fire is former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif. The 2002 NatWest Series Final hero shared a picture of his son playing chess with him.Seemingly innocent? Apparently not. Kaif, who posted a picture with his son on his official Facebook page, captioned it "Shatranj Ke Khilaadi #fatherson #kabirtales #instaplay".
Trolls soon took offense to the post and flooded the comment section with their immaculate assertion that chess was “haram in Islam”.
Comments started pouring in from "Lage raho Bhaijaan new world new hobby but not accepted Islam this hobby but i liket" to simply "Bhai yeh game harraaam he".
The deep understanding of the religion seemed to have miffed the cricketer who simply asked the online oracles if “breathing was also haram”.
